Prayer can be a struggle. Sometimes we don’t think it will make a difference, or we rely on ourselves, or we’re just too busy. And even if we do pray regularly, it can feel more like a duty than a delight.

J.D. Greear shows us how prayer was a non-negotiable daily staple in Jesus’ life, more essential to him than eating or sleeping, and therefore why we need to pray as well. He shows us how we can enjoy the same source of power as our Lord and the early church when we learn to "just ask" and depend on our heavenly Father as they did.

Giving specific practical tips for getting on with prayer in everyday life, this book leaves readers wanting to pray, rather than just feeling that they ought to.

In his introduction, Pastor J.D. says, “Prayer is not a religious task to accomplish; it’s an invitation to lay your burdens down at Jesus’ feet, to share your heart with him, and to be with the one in whose presence is the fullness of joy and at whose right hand are pleasures forevermore (Psalm 16 v 11).”

J.D. Greear is the Lead Pastor at Summit Church and former President of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Rebecca McLaughlin

Author, Confronting Christianity

This book is for people like me: prayer weaklings. We’ve all heard about prayer warriors. Perhaps we even know a few. But it’s the prayer weaklings that need help, and this book bent my wobbly knees
and helped me cry out to my Father. I hope it helps you too.

Dave Gobbett

Lead Minister, Highfields Church, Cardiff, Wales

This book is biblical, realistic, and above all hopeful. As a lifelong struggler when it comes to praying, I’m always on the lookout for books and resources that remind me of the privilege and possibility
of a healthy prayer life. Short and punchy without losing theological depth, Just Ask just might be the devotional game-changer you’ve been looking for.

Matt Carter

Lead Pastor, Sagemont Church, Houston, Texas

Of all the spiritual disciplines, prayer is often the most neglected. Yet when you look at the Scripture page after page and verse after verse exhorts us to seek the face of God through prayer! What are we missing? What has gone wrong? In this book, J.D. Greear not only provides the answers but gives us a powerful and beautiful path forward to what has become one of the most neglected but desperately needed aspects of our walks with Christ.
